Another move another display

Girlfriend’s job had us relocate from Norther Virginia to South Florida so it’s time for something new.

We went from a small apartment to a small house and she wanted the display to be something different than before. We decided to make one side of our living room to be dedicated to collections. Well aside from her 30+ Starbucks that line the kitchen. We ended up going with a set ofBestå cabinets from ikea. The big glass door makes it nice for displays and unlike their bookcase with the glass doors, it doesn’t have a giant gap to let in dust.

I had started out with all of the cars divided between two cabinets but then realized I had other stuff to go in so I consolidated them into one with my Fallout 3 bobbleheads on top. Next step is to figure out a lighting set up.

Before leaving a buddy of mine gave me this one. We served together in Africa and ended up living in the same apartment complex in Arlington. He became as D.C. Metro cop so it is very fitting.

I am not a big fan of other people packing things for me so I took it upon myself to pack these before the movers showed up. Picked the right box because all of the diecasts and bobbleheads fit into one box. I haven’t decided what I will do with the carded hot wheels.
